Andrew was a great hand at odd
jobs about the house. One day he found it necessary to call at the house
of his friend and neighbour on a small matter of business. His knock was
answered by his friend's wife.
"Is Wullie in ?" asked Andrew
"Ay he's in " was the reply
"Weill can I see him " continued the caller
"No ye canna see him " returned the wife
"But I want to see him on a bit of business " persisted Andrew
" Weill ye canna see him. He's deid ! " came the announcement at the door
" Wis it sudden ?" asked Andrew
"Ay vera sudden " he was informed
"Weill ", continued Andrew, "did he say oniething about a pat o green pent
afore he slippit awa ?"
